Dubliners with a Guide to the Craft of Fiction (Illustrated) by James Joyce, Nicholas Leither, Dede Leither

In these fifteen short stories, James Joyce captures the intricate spirit of those living in Dublin in the 20th century with heartbreaking beauty, honesty, and literary elegance. Dubliners is a truly unique investigation of the human condition, and a masterpiece of the fiction writer's craft.

The craft examinations following each story carefully guide readers and writers through Joyce's masterwork, leaving them with a deep and complex understanding of the fundamentals of writing fiction.

By focusing on the work of James Joyce, this illustrated and annotated edition offers something that other craft guides do not: an in-depth exploration of one writer's art. The detailed examples, illustrations, and investigations will transform readers and writers into expert examiners of fiction, whether it is Pride and Prejudice or their own work.
